DC Health to Suspend Testing and Distribution at Libraries, Senior Centers

Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 28, DC Health will suspend the COVID-19 test yourself self-service program and rapid test distribution at senior centers and the District’s Public Lbraries (DCPL).

The District said these changes are “in line” with similar actions at the federal level as a result of decreased cases and greater availability of testing through medical offices, pharmacies and community health centers.

The eight ward COVID centers remain open, offering testing, vaccinations and distributing masks and tests. The Ward 6 COVID Center is located at 507 Eighth St. SE.

DC Health continues to encourage all residents to stay up to date with vaccinations and boosters. You can learn more about the vaccine and find availability near you here.

The District also plans to continue offering opportunities to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, booster or rapid test kit at the District’s COVID Centers in addition to local pharmacies and healthcare providers. You can learn more about the COVID centers here.
